Gallatin Daycare Center, 108 Southpark Cir, Gallatin, TN 37066 should be shut down. Very poorly run ... kids always dirt and place does not teach fundamental education ... kids way behind in many cases. Constantly, lost our expensive clothes. Our kids came home bruised many times with NO writen reports ... Don't send your kids here very low quality.

1 Star is to much for this Center. Horrible Management. Needs shut down.Worried about the safety of all the children in this place under the ownership of a nut job.
The staff is always friendly and helpful! My daughter absolutely loved being here. She has been home with me for several months and still talks about her "school" and her teachers by name!!
I would NOT recommend The Learning Tree, not anymore anyway. I worked there, in the 2.5-3.5 y/o class for about 4 months. The children were great and i can say while I was working there the children in MY class were being treated fairly, cleaned and changed often, and generally very happy and enjoied their time there. BUT the other employees that I worked with did not do their jobs as well as they could have AND should have. There is a lot of favoritism, between the owner and her employees as well as the owner and the children/parents. The employees that the owner has a close or personal relationship with get special treatment, as in; being allowed to have/use cell phones while on the clock and while the children in their designated room are awake and active, NOT being reprimanded if the time sheet (for diaper changes and whether the diaper changed was 1. clean 2.wet 3.soiled) for their room wasn't filled out, as well as getting longer lunches. Also, referring to the favoritism between the owner and the parents/children, I can personally attest to one specific parent who had picked her children up 5 minutes late one day because of traffic, and was told not to bring her children back the next day. She was cut just like that with no notice, and no chance to explain or redeem herself, and no grace period to find another daycare. I can also personally attest to the owner LYING to a parent about how an injury occurred with their child, because the mother of child A was a friend of hers. During arts and crafts time, child A grabbed child B by the face (hands on the sides on his face/cheeks) and bite child B's nose, and drew blood. The wound was two very distinct tooth marks, I witnessed it myself, then later wrote up an incident report, and and accident report, (incident report goes the parents of the child who was injured, accident report goes to the parents of the aggressor, or vice versa. I don't recall which is which) and made a copy of each, one for the parent and one for the files. The next day when I returned to work I noticed the reports were not in the binder where we keep all of the files for my class, so I asked my boss, the owner, and she said she had them. Then, one of the other teachers came to me on her break and informed me that the owner and thrown away my reports and rewritten it saying, child B broke the plastic basket (used for storing toys) and accidentally cut his nose on it while unsupervised. I'm pretty sure that can't be legal in the first place, but on top of changing my report, she made it seem, to the parents, that I was not watching their child. When in actuality I saw exactly what happened, when it happened. So overall, the owner is biased, unfair, and clearly has no problem lying about what goes on in her Daycare.
My two children have been going to The Learning Tree for the past two years. I have an infant and Two year old. We are very pleased with the center. Their 3 STAR rating was wonderful last year and we hope the best for them this year. The center is very clean as my children love coming there. Ms. Amber is wonderful in the Infant room. I would recommend this center to all of my friends.
